Kudos for Mandrake 8.0 from FreeOS.com, which says the worst
problems of the 7.2 release, a buggy and inconsistent installation,
have been largely overcome.
"Those of you, who recall our previous review on
Mandrake 7.2, may remember our main grouse - a buggy and
inconsistent install procedure. Now whether that was due to
software bugs or a bad download was never resolved. We also got
tons of comments from our readers some of who experienced the same
problems. We faithfully forwarded the comments to the Mandrake team
hoping for some reaction. Well, there were none forthcoming,
however if this new release is an indication, it appears they do
take their customers seriously. Mandrake 8.0, the Traktopel version
is all that a newcomer to Linux could ask for and more. Who says
the Linux desktop is dead!"
